Available immediately, users’ Steam library of games can now be managed remotely via the web. With an active Steam client running on the remote PC or Mac, users may log into the Steam web site or mobile app to access and manage their library of games, downloading pre-loads, new releases, or their latest purchases, as soon as they’re available.



Starting today, you can now begin a download of any Steam game from any computer. See a new game coming out that you want to play right away, but you're not home, and don't want to wait for it to download? Or just want a bit of that time shaved off? Well, now you can. All you need is to have Steam running on that account, on your PC or Mac.

This is similar to Google's own Google Play store, where you can download anything you buy straight to your phone(or tablet) without being near it. Might be useful for people constantly on the go, or away from home on vacation.

With the right tools, you can just have your PC wake from sleep via your routers wake on lan facility or similar tool running on your home media server. Loving the sound of this. Another Valve win. (NOW GIMME MY HALF LIFE!)

I'm just waiting for some kind of Steam trading function for the Steam Mobile app. It's so useless now IMHO, I don't want to chat to people on the go via Steam, I just want to trade to get my hatzzzzzz

Thank you, thank you, you've been terrific, folks.

That sounds fascinating, mind pointing me in the right direction?

I always leave my computer off because I'm paranoid about dust

Look into "Wake on LAN" (WoL). Logmein is pretty good and apparently has the feature, although I've never used it. Logmein also has the advantage of having a pretty good Android app.
